Poor Karl. On this can, Rocky Ridge’s every-person hero of misadventure now finds himself adrift in the cosmos on a maple bacon donut as part of a long-running, limited-release series that can be thought of as a serialised graphic novel, released one can at a time. Bad luck is a motif, but there’s good fortune in the glass, which is awash with malt-led milk chocolate and cola, before soft maple, smoke and vanilla complete the scene. As a vegan pastry stout, it’s also got a lot more going for it than poor old mate Karl.
